We are aware that there is currently disruption affecting the supply of parenteral nutrition from the supplier Calea. This is due to necessary changes in their manufacturing process, meaning that Calea is operating at reduced capacity. We understand the concerns of those who use these products. We are working closely with the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency, NHS England and NHS Improvement, the supplier and national experts to resolve this supply issue as quickly as possible to ensure patients requiring parenteral nutrition can be maintained on treatment.
